The Cherries are looking more comfortable

Eddie Howe has clearly been working extremely hard with his players during the international break and the way that his team went about the Swansea match was a credit to the town. I can see why he said he was very proud to be the manger after such a display as the players carried the fight to the Welsh team for the whole game and they have found a way to get points once again.

I was not so enthused about the performance against Newcastle as there was no end product from the Cherries. In this game at the Liberty stadium though, I would have been just as praiseworthy even if the Cherries had lost 3-2. It was not just the fact that they earned a point but that they looked a threat for the whole match. There was no nervousness, but a real game plan to get at Swansea, press them high and not give them any time on the ball. It was impressive and the work rate was tremendous.
AFCB need to find some words that inspire them on to some wins now.
AFCB looked by far the better side and there is real encouragement in the performance not only of individuals but of the team's play in general. It has taken a while to rediscover how best to make up for the loss of Wilson, but the team seem to be enjoying itself and it certainly brought a smile to my face. The aim now must be to collect points and while the games coming up are perhaps more difficult there is part of me that has more confidence that the Cherries can start to take points off of teams who they may not have expected to do so at the start of the season. Role on the next game. It is time to test this new found confidence against a very in form team in a home game.
